About Maca

Maca, native to the high Andes of Peru, has been an important traditional food and medicinal plant for over 2,000 years. Although maca is unrelated to the ginseng family, it has been dubbed Peruvian ginseng because it is often used as a folk remedy to enhance stamina, energy, and sexual function. Maca is naturally rich in polysaccharides; essential minerals, especially calcium, potassium, copper, and iron; fatty acids, including linolenic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acid; and 19 amino acids. Maca's ability to support sexual vigor, energy, stamina and overall health may be due to its high concentration of proteins and vital nutrients.

Gelatinized Maca Powder

Gelatinized maca is processed by taking raw maca root, drying it, and then boiling it and pressurizing it to remove all the starch. The benefits of removing the starch are that the nutrients are more concentrated and the maca powder is easier to digest.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to take Maca Gold™ before I see any benefits?
Unlike OTC and prescription drugs that provide instant, temporary, symptomatic relief, herbal supplements provide progressive, long-term benefits by strengthening and supporting the body's natural defenses. Most herbal supplements, including Maca Gold™, need to be taken for at least 6 to 8 weeks before the benefits of taking the supplement can be experienced. Please be advised that nutritional supplements work best when they are taken as part of a health maintenance program that includes a sensible diet rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, a moderate exercise program, and the necessary lifestyle changes to support wellness.

What are the side effects and/or contraindications, if any, associated with Maca Gold™?
Maca does not have any known side effects or interactions. Individuals with hormone-sensitive conditions such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids, or any other known or suspected medical condition should consult a healthcare professional before using maca. Please consult your healthcare provider before using maca if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, and/or taking any OTC or prescription medications.

Is Maca Gold™ safe for long-term use?
Maca Gold™ should be safe for both short-term and long-term use when used as directed and under the guidance of an experienced herbalist or healthcare provider.
